And i'm really looking forward to the governor. Thank you so. That's very kind now where we always like to stop. The show is in this place. This leadership show and every amenities dog number woman seem to be convinced that they're an influence. So what i liked always the show with who is somebody that we may not have thought of may not be top of mind trust who has been a real influence on you and on your leadership even if somebody we don't know would never think of yeah. I mean look i mean. I've been doing this for twenty seven years when i say this. I mean not working. But watching people work and taking notes and interviewing people about their work and taking notes and so along the way i've met So many Ceo's and But also. Along the way i've met plenty of people on the front lines you know. I've learned as much from people who manage folks who empty bedpans in nursing homes As i have from some of the most powerful ceos in the world. We've done a huge amount of work over the years. When the united states armed forces so learned a huge amount. Also from those guys. And i say guys i use the term guys gender-neutral but most of them are men and so again there i've learned from Young men and women who but is there somebody that stands out for you who you know the regular sort of goto. Oh i was influenced by this person but maybe somebody we wouldn't think of who's not jack. Welsh jack welsh by the way it was my very first client big jack but yeah i mean look so one of my best friends and Is also a guy done crotty would. Since he was twelve hours sixteen he happens to be a. Ceo of a zillion dollar company. His name is jeff crouse fact. I'm writing a book about him. Called the karate master. Ceo and so you know. Jeff is sort of a counter intuitive example. I guess i mean you could look at the guy and said well. He's got an mba berkeley. And he's he's he's been a ceo now. This is the second time around. He's only fifty years old. But here's a guy who you know. And of course. He's a close personal friend so i have a soft spot for them and also he's a mean at he's a fighter and he's really tough so so i only say nice things about but the truth is watching this guy as a turnaround ceo. I've learned so much from him. That i'm writing a book about what what would be the single lesson that you've gotten from him that you would that you would pass on a like to pass on here. What i love about one thing. Yeah what i love about him as he can take a punch and what i mean by that is even in the moments of greatest adversity. So he's been leaving this organization through covid for example he is able to maintain his equilibrium To keep his head on straight to continue to be someone that other people can look to for guidance and direction and support And he he he makes decisions quickly And he keeps everyone sort of moving in the right direction. And i've seen this before right. So covert is probably the greatest example But back in twenty thirteen fourteen. He was leading a different business and there were substantial market headwinds. And what amazes me about him is his ability to just keep going and keep moving forward. Okay what are we going to do next. What are we going to do next and to guide you know. I think he's acutely aware that here hundreds or in some cases thousands of people whose livelihoods in careers Depend a lot on the decisions he makes. of course. the investors are going to make a lot of money too. But what i love about him is his ability to keep his head on straight even in difficult situations in wa. Somebody's throwing punches at So i was going to bring this up later but you've already brought up so let's go there so karate. This is something that is a big part of your life. Tell us a little bit about how that how you got into that and how it impacts the way that you lied. Yes so when. I was seven years old I i was a soft little kid you know. And i think that the other kids didn't much like me and poked at me and you know made fun of me in were mean to me and my mother said i know what we'll do. I mean it was early seventies. my mother said i will take him down to karate school and as it happened the school happened to be like a really serious. Karate squire remember. It smelled horrible over the years. I got used to it. And you know there are all these guys know punching breaking two by twos over their legs and you know punching each other chicken each other and you know and i was terrified and i remember you know. My mother said now. These people are very serious. So if you're gonna do this you gotta be really serious about it. While i was seven years old. Get this the guy who is my teacher. Lives here with us now. Going on six years We we have you know my house next door and our office and doe. Joe is in the house next door and we have a few guest rooms and my teacher from when i was seven years old limbs with us. Now so it's you know karate like it's not that i couldn't have a conversation without mentioning crotty sometimes i do but occasionally yes but it comes up a lot. How did you. How did you karate teach from when you were seven. End up living with you. Well you know. How old are you now fifty. I'm fifty four and you know he'll be seventy nine next week..

"Explode at debt, I can marinate on that for a while. I go. About it all week. Man, okay now, Ryan Wimpy is here. Ryan owns a company called tip top Canine Ryan how many locations do now have of tiptop canine right now we have ten ten yep, and had a record sales month of live right? We had the last two months of both been record sales months. Record sales bonds, so you're with a guy who's just completed writing a book. Yes, almost all of our locations need indispensable people. Okay, so you have. Yeah I. Have a question for you so I, if it comes about managing millennials, so we have helped help to get a lot of systems and processes in place and managing millennials, or our locations are in everything, stops becoming new and shiny. Then we get some drop off, so they do good as long as not distracted. We're doing really good, but then when everything becomes like a real job, and because we're training dogs, so it's really fun, but then once it's ninety percent of a system and ten percent problem solving with the millennials and. How do I find that disengagement if that makes sense. Absolutely I. wrote a book about that called. Not everyone gets trophy and Look my view is. If you look at the most effective employers of young people in the world today for my money. It's the United States forces. Here's what they don't do. They don't say hey. Come to work whenever you feel like it. Bring in and bring your dog see now i. say that to everyone, but in your case that was relevant they actually they don't treat everybody would. What's your area of passion and strength? Let's have you only do that stuff. 'CAUSE 'cause. There's too much work to be done. What what what they do is they? Spell out expectations. Follow up, follow up, follow up! They train train train. They measure measure measure, but. You gotta put your money where your mouth is so I. Think the idea that young people want everything on a silver platter is non. I think the idea that you should just do whatever they want. Ridiculous Your Business. You didn't join. Them may join you. But I do think in order to drive performance, get them to work harder, smarter faster better and get them to stay longer. You gotta stay them. What do you want? You know like some will say I. Don't want to work on Thursday and then people like. Oh, it's an outrage. They don't want to work on Thursday well. You ask what they want. That's what they want. But if the answer they're looking for is not oh, okay, never after work on Thursdays anymore. Because that's what you want, the answer is okay. Let's take one Thursday at a time. Here's what I need mu by Wednesday at midnight. Right so they stink short, term and transactional. You've got to spell out expectations every step of the way and then give them a chance earn more when they go the extra mile and do double triple quadruple what you need! Z. I. Tell You what today's guests I learned a lot from Bruce here from are he planned? Be is on fire today. Bruce is incredible and the new book is called the art of being indispensable. Win Influence beat over commitment and get the right things done. You can get the book Amazon everywhere. That books are sold up, Bruce. Thank you for being on the show? Thank you so much for having me. It's an honor and a privilege. Z. I tell you what there's a lot impact on that. Show a lot to unpack a lot to unpack and one of the things we're trying to better job of is I'm trying to get real success stories on the show. Real people that actually implement what they're learning, and then we have bridges the gap because you get a Guy Bruce on the show and you start to think that guys like Batman I. Could Never Guys Bruce Wayne I could never be their nose. Bruce Tolkien Bruce. Togan People start to think man I want to do that, but it almost seems unapproachable at a certain point. I realized that, and that's you know kind of like a elephant one bite at a time, and that's the practical steps. If it was just one step, you wouldn't say steps. So we're going to do now is we're going to have a Ryan Wimpy? Onto this portion there's this portion of the show and we're GonNa Have Ryan inside the studio more often for the foreseeable future to ask him about some of the successes success his company and let me explain this to the listeners, if you make a product or service, if you make a product or a service, you make it really well, and you nail it down to get scaled nail scale where some, but where you can, you can transform of you can transfer your knowledge to other people and teach them how to do it. You Do yes, and your marketing scalable. Your systems are salable scalable. Your products are scalable. Your services are scalable once you build a scalable. Experience, you can then grow it some more just. You say some more like us. More makes Morris I'm not once. You can scale now. You have three primary ways. You can scale it if you want. Okay every one you can do what you've done with your optometry clinic just opened up another locate. Just do just open, and then you could do like you've done with your auto auction. You could expand the one location correct, or you could do a third move, and there's other ways to expand, but you could do a thing called Franchisee Franchising. Now. Let me tell you what's bad about franchising. Step what you actually have to have done it. The theory of what you could do does not matter, not matter. You have to put together. What's called an item nineteen? The item nineteen is a statement of the financial performance of your company, and whenever you sell a franchise, you have to give this to the potential buyer. Inter possession for beyond two weeks. It's regulated by the Federal Government, and they have to have the opportunity to look at the numbers call. The references talk to current Franchisees. It's kind of a thing. It's kind of a big thing, and so you have to have about two years of good numbers, because otherwise who would want to buy a system that doesn't work right or just a startup that doesn't really have true doesn't have good numbers yet, so I met this guy years ago, he was listening to the Mike McCullough wits profit first podcast first podcast Mike McCallum's and it occurs to him. Wait a minute. The guy on this show is right here in Tulsa. Rate what! I met with this guy and his wonderful wife. He's been training dogs at this point. How long have you been training dogs at about ten years then ten years? He's got it all figured out. He was a traitor dogs. How many dogs were living in your home at the time? Eight to fourteen at a time. To fifteen hundred square foot house..
